This project can be divided in two parts. The first part consist of cutting the “cabanon” of Le Corbusier as Gordon Matta-‐Clark would do in his art. The cut most be relevant of the ambition of the architect. I chose to cut the dwelling in a very simple way, and I realized that by moving a slice of the house, we could obtain an interesting form. The second part consists of designing a studio for an architect in the old Montreal. It is an infill in an urban area, so we had to have a very delicate gesture, nothing to bold. I didn’t want to block the view of the dwellings in the neighborhood so the studio is a one-‐story building with a roof terrace. In addition, the furniture inside would be all on wheels, the space that is made is therefore transformable. Lots of shelves are provided on the back wall of the studio with windows that cut into them. The studio is indeed a simple concept that doesn’t bother anyone.
